To my sensibilities, the idea of free basics is discriminatory and should not be allowed under any circumstances. Nothing in the world comes free. If Facebook is truly concerned about Internet access for those who cannot afford it, let them give the money and millions of smartphones to the government, which can run a subsidy scheme, just like public distribution scheme for food grains.
And those of you who are clicking away on Facebook accepting the free basics propaganda, take some time and read about it first! This is not a complaint to the government about bad roads that you can just pile on, it's serious shit, it's underhanded way of making an advertisement look like a complaint.
